While all this was going on I had a lovely Gravy Beef Casserole with shredded turnip, quartered onions, champignons and chopped bacon in a chicken stock and tomato paste base simmering in the slow cooker. Lovely aromas in a closed warm house for Rhonda to come home to.
Also made some cookies which will go to work this morning so that Rhonda can provide morning tea for her cohort of hungry off-siders in the ward.
Trying to decide if I'll do a Honey and Soy coated slow cooked whole chicken today, or, quarter it up and bake some Parmesan Chicken. Will see what the mood determines when I get to the kitchen.
